...but I'd REALLY like another of these, exactly this colour scheme, except a 19"
It was my first' proper' MTB back in the early '90s, and my last until I joined here, and I commuted 100's of miles on it until it was stolen while my brother was borrowing it! :mad:
I've often looked for...
A chance fb promo for new Retrobike apparel tempted me out of the shadows, so I thought I'd Post something as a break from sitting at my bench soldering!
My old blue bike shed finally had to go to make way for my new workshop, so I used the opportunity to give the bikes a better home too... 8)
I've lost count of the number of tip runs I've done recently, as I continue to make space for my new workshop, but when I saw this faded relic, a tenner to rescue it from the skip seemed reasonable enough!
Complete, and completely original, i wonder how long it'll stay that way... :facepalm:
This is where I spend most of my time these days, on account it actually makes me money, as opposed to being a constant drain on my bank account!
I'm sure I could see my way to offering forum members a 5% discount... 8)

...is road gearing SIS indexing the same spacing as a mountain bike? :oops:
The reason I ask is I am building a drop-bar mountain bike for someone and I've just bought some 21-speed stem-mount shifters then suddenly wondered if they are the same?
Told you it was a dumb question but I've been...
For anyone with a sweet tooth... :D
SWMBO had one of her bosses over the house for dinner yesterday, and as is the norm for these occasions I was reduced to the role of hired help! :lol:
In other words, I do the cooking;
Spag. Bol. had been requested and this was duly whizzed up in the...
Can never remember the d*mn name! :facepalm:
Anyway, very nice DiamondBack Ascent on the forecourt...
...£90 worth of green, skinny steel-tubed, loveliness if anyone is interested?
Always worth trying to knock him down on the price a bit too 8)
Posting this here even though it's modern kit because it's fitted to my '92 Saracen frame and hoping someone can offer the sort of advice that doesn't involve a lump hammer!
Building up my red 'Wot' today I've encountered a problem that has resisted all my efforts so far to resolve :facepalm...
I've just fitted some 8-speed XT STi brakes/shifters to the Kili Comp; tried to be clever by swapping the little plastic segment thingies in the levers around to suit the canti's already fitted but it didn't work, in fact it broke so now the floppy swivelly bit the cable nipple hooks into will...
I bought the Samsung notebook I'm composing this on from one of the many cashconverters outlets I pass during the course of a typical day; it cost me just £99 and I didn't think to question why it was £60 less than the identical notebook next to it (yes, I did test it out in the shop and it...
...well, I'm no Popeye Doyle but as it will be some time before Pierre gets his Gallic hands on his latest acquisition I thought I'd post a few pics to whet his appetite 8)
Though having said that, it's probably better to just paste a link to the Photobucket album itself...
...if anyone is on the lookout for a small MTB there is a pink 24" wheeled Saracen Tufftrax in the second hand shop near the Nat West bank in Newhaven; looks to be in reasonably good nick, and bog-standard apart from the seat, for the princely sum of £25.
